Stacking the Shelves & Week in Review 2/14/15

Stacking the Shelves is a weekly feature hosted by Tynga's Reviews. It's about sharing what I've added to my shelves this week.

Well, so much for a slow week! I thought I was due for one, but I accidentally got a lot of books this week. Oops. I had pre-ordered a few (and forgot I did) and others just happened to end up coming home with me. These things happen when you work in a bookstore. And then there's also my Book Outlet order. They were having a 50% off sci-fi sale and I took advantage of it.

Here's my haul:


I Remember You by Cathleen Davitt Bell
White Space (Dark Passages #1) by Ilsa J. Bick (new in paperback)
The Glass Arrow by Kristin Simmons
City of Savages by Lee Kelly
Shutter by Courtney Alameda
Dove Arising (Dove Chronicles #1) by Karen Bao

Book Outlet Purchases

Control (Control #1) by Lydia Kang
Tandem (Many-Worlds Trilogy #1) by Anna Jarzab
Override (Glitch #2) by Heather Anastasiu
Shutdown (Glitch #3) by Heather Anastasiu
Through to You by Emily Hainsworth
Wildcat Fireflies (Finestra #2) by Amber Kizer
Scintillate (The Light Key Trilogy #1) by Tracy Clark
The Shadow Society by Marie Rutkoski
Parallel by Lauren Miller
Guardian (Proxy #2) by Alex London
Spark (Sky Chasers #2) by Amy Kathleen Ryan
Flame (Sky Chasers #3) by Amy Kathleen Ryan

All of these were between $1 and $3. I got 12 books for not much more than the price of one hardcover!

eARCs from Edelweiss and NetGalley


The Girl at Midnight by Melissa Grey (YAY!!!!) 
Hotel Ruby by Suzanne Young
Some Kind of Normal by Julianna Stone
My Best Everything by Sarah Tomp
Feral Pride (Feral #3) by Cynthia Leitich Smith
We All Looked Up by Tommy Wallach
Willful Machines by Tim Floreen

I also got THIS from Edelweiss: 

Zeroes (Zeros #1) by Scott Westerfeld, Margo Lanagan and Deborah Biancotti

There's no cover yet but I wanted to share it.

What did you add to your shelves this week?

  1. Awesome week full of books. City of Savages was amazing. I hope you like the new Scott Westerfield.

    Grace @ Books of Love

  2. Fantastic haul, Michelle! I'm absolutely dying to read The Glass Arrow. I plan on buying that one very soon. Shutter also looks great (and creepy!) :D


  3. Great haul this week, you've got a really awesome selection of books! Good luck trying to decide what you're going to read first though. I really wish that the shipping cost from Book Outlet to UK wasn't so ridiculous, those books are so cheap on there!

  4. Impressive haul.... I'm sad to see people with their E-Arcs of The Girl At Midnight from Netgalley as mine is still pending..... ok, maybe I'm a little jealous if I'm truthful!

  5. Ooo, dude I LOVED The Glass Arrow! And we both have The Girl of Midnight! I hope you enjoy all of your new books!

    Thanks for visiting my blog! Have a fabulous weekend :)

    Alyssa @ The Eater of Books!

  6. SO much bookish awesome-ness in this post! I cannot wait to read The Glass Arrow, The Girl At Midnight and We All Looked Up the most. I hope we both love all of these!

    Thanks for stopping by my STS <3
    Nicole @ The Quiet Concert

  7. Oh wow! You sure did add a lot of books to your shelf this week. They all look new to me. Happy reading them all.

    Thanks for stopping by my StS and hope enjoy the week ahead.

  8. Great haul! The Glass Arrow sounds really good. I've never ordered anything from Book Outlet but I really should! I hope you enjoy all your books. :)
    Krystianna @ Downright Dystopian

  15. Great haul. I picked up Shutter too. Hotel Ruby sounds great. Added it to my wish list!

  16. My goodness, such a great haul! I am really excited for City of Savages, I really want to buy it but it is so expensive! And all the review books, my goodness! I requested quite a few of them, but... womp womp hahha. I really hope you love these! And it is about the same weather here, UGH, I hope it warms up soon, it is just awful!

  17. Wow, amazing haul of books you have! I liked reading The Glass Arrow - it was an amazing story. Waiting to hear your thoughts on some of the books :)

  18. Nice haul! I really want to read Dove Arising, The Shadow Society and The Girl At Midnight - they look so good! Enjoy! :D

  19. Lovely haul xx the books look like they are all good reads, will be checking them out myself xxx Check out my new blog post! I'm in need of some followers, thank you! X

  20. We've got some of the same books it seems. I've had to keep myself from the Book Outlet website, I would spend so much money. And yeah, I'd get a ton of books, but really, not sure I'll live long enough to read the ones I already have! Great haul, and thanks for stopping by my post earlier!

  21. Nice Haul!!!!! You've got so many books to keep you busy. I have a eArc of Dove Arising I need to read this week. Eek I'm such a slacker. So many books that I'm not familiar with I feel like I'm out of the loop. Looks like you had a good week and great haul of new books to keep you busy. Have a great week. Happy reading!
